WILLIAM BUDD, Esq.

CLERK OF THE PEACE FOE THE COUNTY OF BERKS.

Kensington, 1st December, 1825.

Mv Dear Sir,

The following work, which relates to a subject that has, in all the various situations of life, even from my boyish days, engaged my attention and been to me a source of delight, I dedicate to you, in order that my children may, when they can no longer hear it from their fathers lips, have, what I hope may be, a lasting record of an expression of that great respect and affection that I bear you, on account of your numerous excellent qualities; and particularly on account of your constant exertions in behalf of that now-suffering class, without whose labour there can be no trees to shade, no houses to lodge, no clothes to cover, and no com to feed us. Those exertions, so judicious, so unwearied, and so free from all ostentation, are the subject of admiration with all who have the happiness to know you; but, I trust, with no one in a higher degree than with

Your faithful Friend

And most obedient Servant,

Wm. COBBETT.
